Tracing the VOC (Dutch East India Company)

We are happy to announce that we have uploaded our documentary on YouTube. The documentary is made by Jenne Sipman in 2017. The film follows 5 Dutch artists and designers in India and how they collaborate with Indian craftsmen. Parts from the Dutch merchant Gerrit Clinck’s diary are cited in which he explains how he assigns Indian craftsmen to make chintz in the 17th century.
